The Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are still Google’s current-gen smartphones. These two phones were introduced back in September last year, and everyone is waiting for Google to introduce their successors. Now, if reports are accurate, Google will introduce a couple of new devices under a new name, Google’s upcoming smartphones will be called Pixel (aka Nexus Sailfish) and Pixel XL (aka Nexus Marlin), which means that the Nexus branding is not going to make a comeback. It seems like Google is trying to create a new brand that will appeal to consumers, a brand that will not only include their smartphones, but some of the company’s other devices, you probably remember that Google already released Pixel Chromebooks in the past.
In any case, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL handsets have leaked several times thus far, and both of these phones were also certified by the FCC already. That being said, we have a new leak to share with you, well, it’s more of an assumption than a leak. A Reddit user which goes by the name ‘bndki’ has shared a new image on Reddit (and a belonging animated image), he says that he has created this Pixel XL render based on a recent leak of the device. A real life image of Pixel XL surfaced on Twitter recently, and the image you can see above is a render based on that leak. Do keep in mind that this is just an assumption, it’s not exactly a leak of any kind. Anyhow, you’ll spot an image below the article as well, and it’s actually a .gif animated image which will show you the comparison between a recent leak, and this render that was created by bndki.
The Google Pixel XL was also benchmarked by AnTuTu last month, and according to that info, the device will sport a QHD (2560 x 1440) display, we still don’t know its size, but it is possible that we’re looking at a 5.7-inch panel, if the Nexus 6P’s display is any indication. The device will ship with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, while it will be fueled by the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core SoC, along with the Adreno 530 GPU. The 13-megapixel snapper will be placed on the back of this phone, and an 8-megapixel shooter will be available up front. Android 7.0 or Android 7.1 Nougat will come pre-installed on this phone, and that’s pretty much all the info we have at the moment.
